Who can love the spread of canvas and the bend of the oak and not thrill to the names of the great clippers built by Donald McKay? Great Republic, Sovereign of the Seas, Lightening, Star of the Empire, and Westward Ho these names ring from an era when the windships were the queens of the ocean and sail was king. But the most famous, the one that most securely captured the hearts and imaginations of the entire nation, was McKay's masterpiece, the Flying Cloud.

Here is the story of Enoch Thacher, a boy whose father lost his fortune at sea, who McKay takes on during the lofting, building, and rigging of the Cloud, and who finally ships out on her for her maiden, record-breaking trip around the Horn. Accompanied by Sperry's wonderfully vigorous drawings, this realistic and riveting narrative will keep even landlubbers pegged to their seats.

Review:

A magical book. The romance is irresistible. --Fort Worth Star Telegram

All Sail Set is a gripping novel and one of the best sea yarns ever written. It tells the story of Enoch Thatcher, who sails with the renowned skipper Josiah "Perk" Creesy on the maiden voyage of the legendary Flying Cloud, the clipper that set the record 'round the Horn. What sets All Sail Set apart from most sea tales is its unerring accuracy; it has the ring of truth. Coupled with Armstrong Sperry's detailed, vigorous drawings, this is a realist and riveting narrative that will keep even landlubbers pegged to their seats! --Midwest Book Review
